Order: Coraciiformes

[edit] Description

As defined by Clements (2007), this taxon includes Kingfishers, Todys, Motmots, Bee-eaters, Rollers, Ground-rollers, the Cuckoo Roller, Hoopoes, Woodhoopoes, and Hornbills1.

[edit] Taxonomy

Coraciiformes is an order in the class Aves.

Recent phylogenetic studies suggest that this order will be split in future. It appears that the Kingfishers, Todys, Motmots, Bee-eaters, Rollers and Ground-Rollers are more closely related to Piciformes (Woodpeckers and allies) than to the Hornbills and Hoopoes2. The Cuckoo Roller is even more distantly related2.
